Cyber well-being

This was a very important topic we talked about, though we have seen how amazing the use of technology in the classroom can be, we need to pay close attention to some of the things that can wrong when using it, and by that I mean how dangerous or appropriate it can or can’t be for our students.  I have always looked at technology as an easier way to find information, resources, audios, discussion forum but never really pay much attention to those advertisements or pop windows that might be disturbing (probably because I am already an adult and know what to exclude or not). The idea that might be cyber-bullying makes me a bit nervous, and to be honest I had never heard about it. When working with any of the technologies we need to prepare our students in advance to be careful when looking for information, to know the source of the information, the author, of valid it is, its update, and be a bit critical when choosing a web site. To help with this, I think the best is to notify the parents about the activities that are being carried out so they might have a little control on them at home and also provide help to their children if they need it when they are working on this.
